Arriving in the UK JANUARY / FEBRUARY 2019


Our new declassified Margaux is from the exceptional 2016 vintage and comes from Margaux’s top estate which, in previous years, has only been sold privately to friends and family. It is blended to be drunk young, from now over the next 7-10 years and is a real treat.


It is recognised as one of the outstanding wines of the 2016 vintage.

Our Tasting Notes

A deep garnet and purple with a glorious rich fruit nose that is already showing what a great Claret this will become. A long finish. Satisfying in every respect. All of us should have a few cases of this.

About

Situated 25km from Bordeaux, the Margaux appellation covers five municipalities and is the only one in the Médoc where you find the entire, rich and vast range of wines, from the first to the fifth Grand Cru Classé. Margaux wines are particularly supple and refined. They are characterised by very elegant, fruity aromas, making them the benchmark for generous, sophisticated wines with soft ripe tannin.The vineyard area of Margaux is essentially based on the Garonne's layers, made up of gravel and pebbles from the quaternary period. This soil, well protected from the oceanic winds by the forest benefits from the bracing winds from the Gironde estuary which tempers the climate. The soil's poorness, the gravel's permeability and the slightly sloping hillsides that provide a good drainage allow the vines to be deep rooted, providing the ideal conditions for top quality wines.
